A lot of data cards for Warhammer 40,000 were recently moved to the " Last Chance to Buy" list. Rumors have also been saying that data cards may become a thing of the past. Well, here is a good resource hoping to clear up that rumor. Here is the latest.

I'm an ex staffer in the UK. With regards to the data Cards. They have been, and as far as I am aware, still are splash releases. They only print so many and when they are gone, they are gone. So we shall probably still see data Cards for new dexes etc.
As to a digital version, there is already a fully licenced tactical objectives app here in the UK by derp studios. Available on Android and iPhone. I don't know if it is available on the other side of the pond
